US prevents Turkish invasion of Syria by CAOC intelligence cutoff

DEBKAfile sources refute the overblown reporting of a major US pullback from northeastern Syria and reveal that after 100-150 troops leave two observation posts, 2,250 remain in position. Our military sources disclose that, early Tuesday, Oct. 8, the Pentagon cut the Turkish army and air force off from US command and intelligence and the US regional Surveillance and Reconnaissance Task Force. Without these resources, Ankara cannot conduct any major aerial operation in Syria or elsewhere or launch an offensive operation outside Turkey because it would be denied air cover.  

Initial reporting on the US decision to leave two observation posts and so abandon the Kurds to a Turkish invasion was highly exaggerated due to diverse – often competing – motives. Those two posts on the Turkish border are not located in Kurdish territory. For now, there is no sign of the bulk of US forces quitting their air and other bases in Syria. Neither are Turkish forces seen to be preparing to attack Kurdish towns in northern Syria. American training and its flow of equipment continue uninterrupted for the Syrian Defense Forces, of which the Kurdish YPG is the backbone. As an added deterrent, President Donald Trump warned Turkey on Monday night if it “goes too far” – meaning that if President Recep Erdogan carries out his repeated threats to attack the Syrian Kurds to clear them out of the regions abutting on the Turkish border – the Turks “would suffer the wrath of an extremely decimated economy” which is already in a very bad way.

    The Wrath of the US Airforce which Turkey’s US supplied F-16 force ( if indeed you could even call it an “airforce” ) are woefully prepared to confront over NE Syria. Erdogan may just get lynched if he is stupid enough to send his depleted airforce over the border and they start losing dozens of aircraft to US F-22’s and deplete it even further because they are not coordinated with the US led Coalition. Seriously how long does Erdogan have before his ridiculously empty threats of invasion become something that he can’t get out of anymore and he does it anyway? Not long to go!

      The Reality of the Mideast Military Powers are Iran, Turkey, & Egypt has the Capabilities to Start a Conflict but cannot Sustain it over a long period of time. The Iranian Shiia Proxies can sustain an Infitida Terror Campaign against Civilians much like ISIS & Taliban did, but Foreign Militaries can Outlast & Target Leadership as well from the West. Only Israel has the Ability to be an Effective Devastating Opponent in a Short Term War that would Wipe out Major Offensives Regional Air, Ground & Naval Bases & Cities in a Required Response.

        Yes and it has nothing to do with 50 year old technology.

        It has to do with the “little black box” that Israel used during the 6 day war.

        The one when they flipped the switch, all the tanks in that valley stopped running.

        Tesla energy dampening technology worked then and it will work again on any moron stupid enough to attack Israel

      syrian-russian s-400 missile defense system is probably A bigger issue, and I read an article syria had received the s-500. Kurds could also build tunnels and sneak weapons into turkey. In G-d I trust.

        Oh yes, a bigger issue! Bigger because the moment the Turkeys turn on their S-400 radars and reveal their placement, the IAF F-35s will take them out, blinding the missile launchers and rendering them easy targets.

        Why do you think the Russians didn’t dare turn them on when the US sent cruise missiles against the Syrian chemical attack?

        Very briefly, most practise a form of Shia, some a form of Sunni, but with a powerful influence of Zoroastrianism. Orthodox Shia and Sunni regard Kurds as heretics. Before the 7th Century the entire Middle East and North Africa were mostly Christian and plus the remnant of the Jews who escaped the Roman genocide of 70-74 AD. Some Christian Kurds still exist and very old translations of the Bible into Kurdish have been discovered. Just as in North Africa, the conversions to Islam were conducted under the sword.

        The Kurds are a group of very diverse ancient peoples originating some 4000-5000 years ago, some of them descended from the Medes (who incorporated the country of Elam to become Persia). Kurds today number today about 40 million worldwide, with some very different Kurdish dialects. About 15-20 million of the Kurds live in Turkey and co-operate with the 3 million Kurds in Iraq and the 10 million in Iran. Although their land is politically split up into parts of Turkey, Syria, Iran and Syria, geographically the Kurds control one united and connected mountainous area in those countries.

        Kurds generally are a straightforward, kind, warm and very moral people. Kurds generally distinguish themselves from other Muslim cultures. Having lived in a constant battle for autonomy through the millennia, Kurds generally are very smart and very brave ground fighters. Kurds are now a very diverse group of peoples, living in four Middle East countries, Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran, none of which are willing to grant them independence, and there is also a considerable diaspora abroad.

        The Turkish dictator Erdogan would like to eliminate the Kurds in his own country but there are too many and there would be a Kurdish uprising. Also, he cannot do that so easily because his own Kurds are backed up by the Kurds in Iran and Syria and there would be a protracted gerilla war. This is why he wants to go into Syria and kill the Syian Kurds first, and then marginalise his own Kurds when they no longer have a rear-guard that support them from Syria.

        Kurds have been a loyal ally of the US since the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Some estimate that the Kurds suffered losses of 30 000 men and women to rid Syria of ISIS.

    A lot of Jewish hopium here. Trump unequivocally have said that he got enough of mid-eastern wars out of which US has gained nothing. He has also said that it is time for Iran, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Syria, Turkey and Russia to sort the mess out themselves. Of course he did not mention Israel here as he could not but it is evident that Israel has most to lose with US pullout.
    Howls of neocons that are by definition mostly Jews are proof of the hurt they fell. No more wars for Eretz Israel paid with American blood. Israel-Saudi Arabia-US axis is falling apart in front of your eyes. If Trump survives this phony impeachment (and I think he will), the shackles will be taken off and he finally will be free to do what he has promised to do….clean the swamp and promote AMERICAN interests.
    Sorry Israelis, you are no friend to US, you have already turned to Russia and China with Putin promising to take care of you. Pity….but in the end this is what Jews always do. There are people still alive who remember how you greeted Bolsheviks when they invaded Poland in 1939. Then you betrayed Russians and switched to US in 1967.Yes, the same country that was first to recognize Israel even before US did. Now you switch again to China-Russia. Switching sides is what you do. Nobody can trust you, NOBODY!

      Given the history of Jews amongst other people, they need to do whatever is necessary to survive. Having said that, there are many Americans that are alive today because of Israel and Israelis. It has been far from a one way street. Have a look at your stock market and see how many innovative, even transformative, Israeli companies are imbedded there after being taken over by U.S. companies. Even in Israel, giant American corporations are reaping the intellectual and creative capital of Israelis. You can criticize Israel for doing whatever she thinks is necessary to survive but given that survival is at stake there is little that anyone can do to alter Israel’s direction. Were other countries in Israel’s situation, they would not conduct themselves any differently.

    Even if Cogito is overblowing his case, I am shocked and dismayed at the extent that DEBKA consistently criticizes and disparages reports coming from the USA press about White House intentions. Maybe DEBKA is really the biggest bunch of NEOCOMS out there. They will criticize ANYTHING that seems to suggest that the USA isn’t 100% with Israel, and ANY news reports not aligned with the extreme right wing of Israel. This president, and Obama before him, would like a policy of disengagement from the middle east. Trump is facing resistence from his advisors, but his intentions remain clear. Sooner or later, Debka….right or wrong, Debka….

    Hey, guess what Debka and everybody? Possible that Turkey is poised to enter northern Syria. You simply CANNOT trust anything Trump says or does, anymore. Get it? He is a pathological liar with a megalomaniac facade as a defense against an inferiority complex. DEBKA, forget Trump. He is NO friend to Israel, and never has been!! Get a life, Trumppies!!! You can do it, if you want to!!! You’re not all losers. Believe me!!

    The reports are right now that Turkey has started the invasion of Northern Syria. I don’t understand how Debka could report yesterday that the US somehow had prevented the invasion. Anyways, I hope the Kurds will fight valiantly and that the US is ashamed for betraying the Kurds who fought ISIS for us all.
